Mistakes You Should Avoid while driving in the snow
After a little while with no mishaps, you grow more confident and inch back up to your usual speed. The radio is playing your favorite jazz music, and the traffic conditions have you convinced that you won't be late. But now you're traveling down a hill toward a stoplight, and when you apply the brakes, you can feel that something's wrong. You're not coming to a smooth stop. Instead, you're slipping, and now the bumper of the car in front of you is alarmingly close -- right before you crash into it.
To avoid becoming another statistic, there are some common errors you should know so you can steer clear of them.
#1, Driving Too Fast
#2, Slamming on the Brakes
#3, Following Too Closely
#4, Not Being Prepared
#5, Thinking Your F-150 pick up truck Makes You Invincible
